Just had a failed to start on my 55 plate Sm. Jumped started first time off a fresh battery so guess it's time for a new one. Is 5 years about right for a battery on the 950SM? Bike is on an optimiser when garaged and done 13k.

Does anyone know a good replacement battery and supplier? Is it best to go with straight replacement or is there a better option out there?

Any advice appreciated, thanks.

See batterymans posts/guides - if you are keeping the bike OEM spec Yuasa - if you are punting it quick, maybe something cheaper?

Was told by a motorcycle mechanic that 4 years is about it for batteries as long as they are looked after correctly.
